In yet another shocking  episode of a football player losing his cool, a German club  footballer playing for CSV Marathon attacked the referee mid-game and was subsequently handed an eight-year ban by the authorities for “his act of grave indiscipline.”

The player is named Samet, though his full name cannot be revealed due to legal reasons. It was the 80th minute of the game between SV Oppum and CSV Marathon II in September when the drama unfolded. The entire feud started over a controversial goal for SV Oppum that was allowed by the referee but the CSV Marathon players believed to be offside. In the ensuing melee, one of the CSV players was sent off which made the entire situation even more aggravated.

“We can now expel the person from our club,” Wiebus said. “Attacking the referee is a no-no.”

“It’s honorable work we are doing, and things like that just take away all the fun”.

“We’d rather focus on our great work with our partner club SC Hellas. It tarnishes everything.” Wiebus added.

The club, which plies its trade in the lower German league had pushed for a maximum ban on the player after his theatrics and would look to make amends after the incident.

On the other hand, Samet seems to have a bleak future ahead of him as after being banned from football, chances are that he will also have to face criminal charges for his actions.
